We are planning on installing a WLC 4402 and about a half dozen 1131 AP on our network and over time about 6 more APs will be installed. The WLC and APs will be connected to a new HP switch which supports VLANs but not layer 3 switching/routing. Our network is simple and consists of a private IP class C network. In preparation for deploying the hardware I've been reading some tech docs and the Cisco 440X Series Wireless LAN Controllers Deployment Guide, which has been very helpful.
The guide talks about multiple VLANs and IP addresses from another network assigned to the VLANs, Management interface and the DHCP server on another IP network. Our goal is simple and to use the APs for wireless throughout our building on our class C network and use the WLC for centralized management.
I would like to know if all the VLANs and IP addresses as shown in the guide is necessary for what we need to accomplish?
Thanks for any help.
